Support offered Beat exists to encourage and empower people to get help quickly, because we know the sooner someone starts treatment, the greater their chance of recovery. People can contact us online or by phone 365 days a year. We listen to them, help them to understand the illness, and support them to take positive steps towards recovery. We also support family and friends, equipping them with essential skills and advice, so they can help their loved ones recover whilst also looking after their own mental health. And we campaign to increase knowledge among healthcare and other relevant professionals, and for better funding for high-quality treatment, so that when people are brave enough to take vital steps towards recovery, the right help is available to them.

Working in schools, and with families, charities, community and public services, the HeadStart partnerships are designing, testing and implementing different approaches to:

build young people’s emotional resilience
respond to the early signs of common mental health problems
provide additional joined-up support when and where it is needed.
By raising awareness of young people’s mental wellbeing, the HeadStart partnerships also support adults to know how to spot the early signs of problems, know what they can do to provide support, and where to go to get more specialised help.
